The second game of a home-and-home set sees the Arizona Coyotes (8th in Pacific Division) host the Dallas Stars (5th in Central), who claimed a victory in the first contest in Texas…

Stars Deliver On Their Own Ice

A home-and-home set against the Arizona Coyotes started well for the Dallas Stars (3-3-0), who grabbed their second straight victory and third straight on their own ice by beating the visiting ‘Yotes 3-1 at American Airlines Center on Tuesday. Radek Faksa (1 goal, 2 points for the current season) and Dan Hamhuis (1 goal, 2 points) registered a goal and an assist each, with Faksa netting just over five minutes into the opening period and Hamhuis burying a wrister in the middle of the second frame to give the Stars a 2-0 head-start. The Coyotes managed to cut Dallas’ lead in half just barely four minutes later, but failed to orchestrate anything further, with Alexander Radulov (1 goal, 3 points) finishing the game with an empty-netter 52 seconds from time.

Goalie Ben Bishop made his fifth start of the season, turning away a total of 27 shots. He has now gone 3-1-0 for the year with a 1.49 GAA and a .944 save percentage and is 4-1-2 versus Arizona in past meetings with a 2.64 GAA and a .901 save percentage. Kari Lehtonen (0-2-0 for the year with a 5.00 GAA and a .813 save percentage), meanwhile, is 14-4-4 against the Coyotes in the past with a 2.05 GAA and a .933 save percentage. The Stars are scoring the 5th lowest number of goals per game (2.33), giving up the 5th lowest quantity on the defensive end as well (2.33). They are 8th in power play with a 26.3% success rate (5-for-19) and 6th in penalty kill with 87.0% proficiency (20-for-23).

No Wins Yet For The ‘Yotes

The Arizona Coyotes (0-5-1) still remain on the lookout for their first victory of the season, as their first outing of a home-and-home set against the Dallas Stars ended with a 3-1 defeat at American Airlines Center on Tuesday. After the hosts took a 2-0 lead by the middle of the second period, Jason Demers managed to get one goal back, netting his first snipe of the year for his second point with a wrist shot at 14:40 in the middle frame. The Coyotes delivered 15 shots on goal in the final third, with Anthony Duclair (1 goal, 3 points) missing an almost open net and Derek Stepan (3 assists, 3 points) hitting the post, but failed to take their chances, including on two back-to-back power plays.

With goalie Antti Raanta (0-1-1 for the year with a 3.33 GAA and a .911 save percentage) still suffering from a muscle strain, rookie Adin Hill (16-14-0 with a 3.16 GAA and a .906 save percentage for the AHL’s Tucson Roadrunners last year) made his NHL debut with a solid 31-save performance, notching a .939 save percentage. Louis Domingue (0-2-0 for the season with a 4.55 GAA and a .862 save percentage) is likely to guard the cage against Dallas in the second game, though, having posted a 2-1-0 career record versus the Stars with a 3.00 GAA and a .921 save percentage. The Coyotes are currently 2nd in least goals scored per fixture (2.00), top of the league in most goals allowed on average (4.17 per contest), 16th in power play with a 19.0% conversion rate (4-for-21) and 23rd in penalty kill with 77.8% efficiency (14-for-18).

Trends

Dallas

  • Stars are 5-0 in their last 5 overall meetings with Coyotes.
  • Stars are 4-1 in their last 5 vs. Pacific.
  • Stars are 7-2 in their last 9 when their opponent scores 2 goals or less in their previous game.

Arizona

  • Coyotes are 0-4 in their last 4 home games.
  • Coyotes are 17-60 in their last 77 vs. Central.
  • Coyotes are 17-43 in their last 60 vs. Western Conference.

The Stars had an awful campaign last year, yet they still managed to sweep the season series against the Coyotes (4-0-0), who have now gone without a victory in their last four home contests. Look for a determined Dallas side to extend their winning streak to three games here…
